Courses Taught

** Developed by Suzanne K. Lunsford

CHM 246 **- Concepts in Chemistry I (Pre-service chemical education, part I)
Basic fundamental concerns of chemistry for early childhood education majors. Those concrete observable topics most appropriate for early childhood education minors will be emphasized. Course includes an in-depth study of heat and temperature.

CHM 346 **- Concepts in Chemistry II (Pre-service chemical education, part II)
Based on National Science Education Standards. Topics include: periodic table, chemical reactions, thermochemistry, organic and nuclear chemistry with everyday examples. Inquiry-based activities including historical and societal perspectives. For Middle Childhood Majors pursuing science concentration.

CHM 645 **- Concepts in Chemistry for MST (Master of Science in Teaching) Students
Basic fundamental concerns of chemistry for early childhood education majors. Those concrete observable topics most appropriate for early childhood education minors will be emphasized. Course includes an in-depth study of heat and temperature.

CHM 650 **- Concepts in Chemistry II
Concepts in chemistry II is for graduate students in middle childhood science education (MST Program). Course includes detailed study of chemical reactions, kinetics, environmental issues, acids/bases, and nuclear chemistry. Portfolio development will be utilized for students to learn the development of inquiry activities for the classroom.

CHM 698 **- Chemistry for Education Majors
Selected topics in chemical education. Directed readings or one-time offerings of topics related to the teaching of chemistry at various levels using different Pedagogical approached. May include summer workshops or institutes. Note-Graduate level chemistry course for in-service teachers funded by the Ohio Board of Regents – Project PIES, PI: Suzanne K. Lunsford when held at Duke University Marine Lab
